Max and the Festival of Education announced today on his Twitter and Facebook that he will be speaking at the Festival of Education for the second time ever!
Max is honoured to be speaking at the event and this year marks ten years since the event started!
Max said "I can not wait to speak at the event again last year went so so well and I always love getting the band back together with Jon Reid and doing another speech with him!"
Max is set to speak about his life and what helped him vs what didn't and Jon will be speaking about how we can teach not only teachers but people understand the condition more!
The Session has been called magic and just a real life inspiration and this year will be no different!
During this session an ex-student Max J Green and his ex-teacher Jon Reid reflect on working together in an Independent Special School that supported children and young people with complex learning needs, communication difficulties and associated “challenging behaviour”.
During the session we will critically explore ‘what worked and what definitely didn’t’ from the perspective of a pupil and his teacher. Drawing on literature and research relating to “Compassion” focused approaches in Education, the session will also offer some challenges to current policy and practice relating to ‘behaviour management’.
Thanks to Festival of Education for having Max and Jon again! :)
